Superconductors get a boost from pressure

Monday, May 19, 2008 - 14:35 in Physics & Chemistry

Superconductors can convey more than 150 times more electricity than copper wires because they don`t restrict electron movement, the essence of electricity. But to do this, the materials have to be cooled below a very low, so-called, transition temperature, which often makes them impractical for widespread use.
